Iris Compiet

Iris is a traditional artist and Illustrator from the Netherlands who enjoys working on projects ranging from picture books to gallery art, concept art and sculpting. Storytelling is an essential part of her art, drawing inspiration from European folklore, mythology, fairytales and ghost stories she explores the depths of darkness to find the light. She is the creator of Faeries of the Faultlines, a book she wrote and illustrated herself and about which Brian Froud says this: “Iris Compiet’s work is an astonishing and masterful revelation of the Faery Realms. She is an artist who, with stunning alacrity, reveals the fleeting personalities of the normally unseen.”
